Weekend Race Report: 15-Nov-09
New Balance Fall Classic – Nov 15, 09
Despite the wind and rain, SAA racers had a great day out at UBC with the various distances at the New Balance Fall Classic.Â This is a great race to end the year off with and you have your choice of a 5 km, 10 km and 1/2 Marathon.
In the 5 km race, we had two speedy racers. Congrats go to Tracy Baisley and our very own Kenyan, Pat Malaviarachchi who finished 3rd in his age group while making a brilliant career move by letting his boss at work finish every so slightly ahead of him.
The 10 km race saw one SAA member out braving the wind, rain and cold. Tess Zevenbergen ran a strong race, nicely done!
For those that liked the 10 k course so much they decided to run it twice (and a bit), there was the 1/2 Marathon race. The rather large SAA contingent that tackled this race were, in alphabetical order, as follows: Dave Burrows, Benji Chu, James Copley, Â Susan Gelinas (PB!! and a New York Marathon qualifying time), Trudy Harris, Doug Harris, Erin Lee (PB!!!), Tracey Marshall, Ira Sy, Quanny Van, Â Fay Waterberg (PB!!) and Marinus Waterberg (P2ndB!).Â Great job to all of you.
Rock N Roll San Antonio Marathon – Nov 15, 09
Away from the rain of Vancouver and out in the sun of San Antonio, Jim Fox ran the Rock N Roll San Antonio Marathon. Rumour has it that Jim has his eyes set on some Bling after completing multiple Rock N Roll races.
